Yahoo this morning encouraged me to share my wishes and words of advice for the Royal couple in signing a Royal Wedding guest book. You’ve seen the wedding advertised everywhere, lately for Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Yahoo declared: “Share your wishes and advice for a happy marriage with the royal couple. Sign the guestbook and you’ll be entered to win a trip for two to Las Vegas! More details.“ I thought the announcement a little odd coming from Yahoo as America has no connection to the Royal family; minus our Independance, of course. Over 108 years ago, the Province of Louisiana was offered by Louis XV to Great Britain. Great Britain declined to accept. I wonder why? What would the history of Louisiana have been like if Great Britain accepted the Province of Louisiana? You can read the 108 year old story below.
It was most interesting to note this quote: “I fear that any cession in the Gulf of Mexico might lead to serious consequences.”
